 - Technological revolution at London Fashion Week
One of the biggest changes in London Fashion Week's 25 year history is the technological revolution.

Pre-digital, the bank of photographers had to courier their films to processing labs and wait for them to be developed.

Now images are uploaded within minutes of a show finishing.

Twitter (

and Viigo has developed a London Fashion Week Blackberry application which allows you to create a personal schedule, receive live updates and access official content.

With websites such as SHOWstudio broadcasting videos throughout the Week, there is a virtual democratization of London Fashion Week.

What was once a highly exclusive event is still selective - you have to be accredited to attend and invited by designers to shows, but now with such excellent web coverage, even if you aren't invited you can get a front row seat.
